West Chester Pike Michelin Man Might Scare Stupid People Or Foreigners.

Posted by Picasa


(talking in a foreign accent) "Run for life! Run for the life!"

A bet that's what a really stupid person or a foreigner might scream if they saw this Michelin Man that is positioned very scarily over this hill on West Chester Pike.

I mean, I know they've got to sell tires but is it worth the risk of frightening the stupid and people from different lands?

I'm not sure.

I don't know about people from different lands, but it's ALWAYS worth scaring the stupid people.

Oh, I thought that he was a guy who only eat at Mc Donalds..
Come to Spain and you will see giant black bulls(bidimensionals)...that is really scary!

Sass said...

The picture alone frightens me.

And I'm not a foreigner.

Shit. I guess I must be stupid.

I'm okay with that.

Gaston Studio said...

Good perspective of the photo Dr. Zibbs.

Maybe foreigners think it's part of a movie set... as for stupid people, they'll think what they want to anyway.

Isn't it the same monster in ghostbusters?

He looks like he's in one of those really bad horror movies, about to pounce on some unwary couple who are making out in the woods.

He reminds me of the Pillsbury doughboy. Where's my warm biscuit? Oh, there it is over there, gotta go.

Cora said...

Oh look, it's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

ummm, Zibsy were you driving when you took that?????

As a foreigner (at least in the context of this tyre-selling behemoth), I'm not scared.

A bit turned on maybe, but not scared . . .

What would a stupid person or foreigner do?

I think the better question is:

What would a stupid foreigner do?

Or is that redundant?

Or racist? Or racdundist?

Discuss.

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy - yes I was driving. Are you concerned that I was frightened when I turned the bend and saw this over yonder?

I appreciate that you were...

Wait. Are you saying I'm stupid?

One time I went camping and we made the most wonderful smores.

I like the angle. It makes him look like an outcast who is atop his lonely perch, shaking his fist at a world that will never accept him. A tragic figure, really.

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

What Earl wrote was really funny-saying that picture was Slyde. Their comment banter cracks me up every damn time.

your apology is noted.

:)

Dr Zibbs said...

Words Words Words - that had me laughing out loud.

And thanks for the compliment on the composition of my photography.
